Recovery Rebate Credit and Economic Impact Payments

The Internal Revenue Service and the Treasury Department have finished delivering the first and second Economic Impact Payments.  Check your final payment status in Get My Payment.

Most individuals eligible for the Recovery Rebate Credit have already received the full amount in the two Economic Impact Payments. If we issued you the full amount of each Economic Impact Payment, you won’t need to claim the Recovery Rebate Credit or include any information related to it when you file your 2020 tax return because we already issued your Recovery Rebate Credit as Economic Impact Payments.

If you’re eligible for the credit, and either we didn’t issue you any Economic Impact Payments or we issued less than the full amounts, you may claim the Recovery Rebate Credit. You must file a 2020 tax return to claim the credit even if you are not required to file.

See Recovery Rebate Credit for more information.
